{i want to remember} - 1/25/12

Sometimes life gets so busy that I forget to notice and appreciate the little things. Here are some of the things I am loving this week:

 I WANT TO REMEMBER... how adorable D is when he declares either of his brothers is his best friend.  This happens on nearly a daily basis.  The two most recent: "Mamma, J is my best friend because he kisses me." and "M, you not my best friend anymore?" (they were having a spat)

I WANT TO REMEMBER... how sweet it is to watch the bond between baby J and his daddy.  They have had a special connection since he was a tiny newborn.  I can't wait to see their relationship as he grows up.

I WANT TO REMEMBER... M and the crazy things he's been saying lately.  At bedtime, my husband always prays "in thanksgiving for my family".  M, in an attempt to one-up his father, tried this new prayer: "in Christmas for my family."  I guess the holidays work interchangably.  :)

I WANT TO REMEMBER... this amazing prayer prayed by Mother Teresa:
"Dear Jesus, help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. Amen." 
I am my little sister's Confirmation sponsor and we are praying this daily until the big day.  I hope it's as powerful a prayer to her as it is to me. 


  1. Oooh, love Blessed Mother Teresa. Love that prayer too. Thanks for sharing!
